The Reef Marina has once again outdone themselves. Carine, Stephan, Bruno and all of their staff go above and beyond to make every experience they offer exceptional. It does not matter if you are snorkelling with your children, scuba diving the many reefs around Playa or diving the caves and caverns of the area, you will have an amazing time... More

Stephan, Bruno and the entire staff were incredible. They are very customer focused and work hard to give the best experience possible. My two teenage kids (17 & 15) finished their open water certification. Our dive master (Sucio) was incredibly patient and supportive in teaching my kids. The staff was very helpful with my wife who needed a little extra... More

Once again the Reef Marina provided excellent service. Returned to Playa and dove with Reef Marina. It was our daughters 1st salt water dive experience (Junior diver certified 2013) and Bruno and Stefan arranged for Bastian to be our dive master. Bastian was excellent to all of us helping make sure everyone was well informed and had a dive plan... More

We did not pre-book, just in case we wanted to change our minds once there, as we were staying a Reef Playacar for a wedding. As well, the discount for pre-booking wasn't that substantial. We checked in with Reef Marina the day we checked into Reef Playacar, with the hopes of diving the next two mornings. The next one was... More

A quick note to echo all the great things about this center. It was a really cool experience thanks to the team there and Stephan and Jose. From the introduction in the pool to the open water dive, all worked perfect. Very well organized and highly professional people we felt very safe even at 12 m below sea level. An... More

Very thorough and professional. Guide Nicholas(sp?) took us through cenotes- very cool, and i'm an experienced diver. He was always cautious yet gave us exdellent tours. Dive shop staff was great, even rinsing all the dive gear quite completely. would go back to this shop anytime.

I have never been diving and actually have a fear of deep water. When we decided to go to Cancun for our honeymoon, one of the things my husband wanted to do was learn to dive. I decided I wanted to try it so that we could do it together but also to help overcome my fear. We had 2... More
